FaZe Clan’s Fortnite player Ewok
revealed that he’s transgender on Oct. 11
in honor of National Coming Out Day.
In a Twitlonger post, the 15-year-old
pro gamer formally announced that he
identifies as male and is also bisexual.
Ewok explained that he never felt
comfortable in his own body and often
“dressed up like a boy” as a young child.
After years of struggle, he
finally decided to come out.
“This is truly a big decision and I know
it’ll impact some people. I’ll need y’all support…
It means the world to me. Thank you”.
Ewok’s announcement was
met by a wave of support
from fellow gaming personalities
and, notably, his own clan.
When FaZe Clan signed Ewok in 2019,
he made waves at the time for being the
first female member of the clan.
The then 14-year-old wunderkind was
already turning heads at the age of 13
for being so skilled at Fortnite.
Perhaps even more impressive was
the revelation that Ewok is deaf.
He was easily beating out older players
relying on nothing but eyesight
